It remains the case that one of President Biden’s strongest arguments as he seeks reelection is that he is not Donald Trump.
From polling to focus groups, the same refrain emerges: A lot of voters don’t love Biden, but they fear a second Trump term. This isn’t everyone, obviously. Lots of people like Biden and lots of people like Trump. But in a possible contest between two relatively unpopular candidates, the less-unpopular one has a leg up.
